In this photo taken on December 12, 2016, a cat sits on the counter at a Chinese medicine shop in Hong Kong. Four-legged "assistants" can be found perched in certain shops across Hong Kong, keeping a nonchalant eye on business while the city does its non-stop bustle past their storefronts. / AFP PHOTO / Anthony WALLACE
